Cow Softie Fabric Toy sewing pattern

This is a Cow Softie Fabric Toy pdf sewing pattern. The designer, Xanthe Patterns, named it the Tilting Head Calf PDF Sewing Pattern and Tutorial, and you can see why!

You should be aware that the head is fastened to the body. You can make it so it faces either to the right or left when sewing, but you cannot turn it after you have finished making your cute cow. The muzzle is attached by using a sewing machine, not by hand.

When you have finished making yourself this Cow Softie Fabric Toy it will measure approximately 11″ (28 cm) tall, excluding the ears and corns.

The designer points out that this full-size pattern which has a step-by-step tutorial (in English) and clear photos is easy to follow, as long as you have some basic sewing skills.

What you will need to make this Cow Softie Fabric Toy:-

  • Main fabric = 1/4 yard (23 cm) of 44″ (110 cm) wide printed cotton,
  • Contrasting fabric = 11″ (28 cm) of 21″ (53 cm) solid-color linen,
  • Two small black buttons (or felt scraps) for the eyes,
  • Two small wooden buttons for the nostrils,
  • Polyfill for stuffing,
  • Matching thread,
  • Basic sewing supplies,
